repo: is a free Unix command line tool which checks a server's
on any port for the support of TLS/SSL ciphers, protocols as well as
cryptographic flaws.

It's designed to provide clear output for a "is this good or bad"

It is working on every Linux distribution which has OpenSSL installed.
for security reasons some distributors outphase the buggy stuff – and
is exactly you want to check for – it's recommended to compile OpenSSL
yourself or check out the OpenSSL binaries below (Linux). You will get a
warning though if your OpenSSL client cannot perform a specific check,
below. is portable, it is supposed to work on any other Unix system
(preferably with GNU tools) and on cygwin, supposed it can find the

disclaimer: i'm not the cretator of that script; i'm just maintaing the
repo. owner & contact might be found on the webpage

There is also cipherscan by Julien Vehent (with a bunch of patches by
mzeltner and me).

Original repo doesn't yet include our pull request

It works with any *nix or *tux with OpenSSL. (Tested with Debian, OS X,
Solaris and FreeBSD.) You can specify which openssl binary you want to
use to enumerate ciphers and protocols. Also gives details about DH
parameters, key exchange and PFS.

Feedback is welcome!
Best regards
